Draft Notes

Carlyle is an ultra-quick and explosive lead guard who flashes big time upside. He has an elite first step and blow-by ability and overall top end athleticism. He’ll need to keep getting stronger but he’s well on his way to having an NBA frame.

Carlyle is a blur up and down the court and has an extra gear. He loves to push the pace and attack the rim or set up teammates in the open court.

Has a nice pull-up game and can score 1on1, taking it all the way to the rim or getting into his mid range game.

He’s a capable 3pt shooter but has a ways to go in terms of becoming a knock down threat from NBA range. But he’s young and we’ll see big improvements in his jumper over the coming years.

On the defensive end Carlyle really gets after it pressuring the ball and using his elite quickness to disrupt in the passing lanes. Has all the tools to be a great defender at the next levels of play.
